Dorothy "Dot" Williams is the assistant, maid, companion and friend of Miss Phryne Fisher. Dot is a conservative and very devout Catholic.
Dot was raised in a devout Catholic home and brainwashed to bow before the iron jackboot of patriarchy.
She has five siblings including at least one sister. She is a supporter of the West Melbourne football team, and has been supporting them since she was young because of a deal that had been made by her parents. Her parents each supported a different footy team so they decided to split the children up as to which team they would support. The girls (including Dot) supported their mother's team (West Melbourne) while the boys supported their father's team (Abbotsford). Dot plans on doing the same with her own children.
Working with Miss FisherEdit
When Dot was dismissed from her previous job as a maid without a reference, Miss Fisher took her under her wing. Dot is very loyal, dedicated and a smart servant who blossoms in Miss Fisher's household. She is a sharp judge of character and doesn't fluster easily. Her loyalty to Miss Fisher leads her to do some very unconventional things such as posing as a worker in a factory or a woman in the "family way" to get insider information while helping Miss Fisher with a case. She takes such tasks in stride and without hesitation. Dot has an eye for detail and is very skilled at baking, sewing, and cooking. She is currently married to Constable Hugh Collins.
